J.B. Gibbons - a leader in commercial building construction


About Us

J.B. Gibbons has been a leader in commercial building construction since 1967. For 45 years our knowledgeable team and hard work has kept us as one of Pennsylvania's foremost commercial contractors. Please browse our website to see what we have to offer.

A good building is more than just a carpenter. That's the principle we lay forth. We are proud to be the WLCC Phillips/Plankenhorn Small Business of the Year Award recipient for 2006. Click here to view the 12 minute video.

J.B. Gibbons Construction continues to serve the region as a commercial-industrial general contractor. Upon graduation from the University of Notre Dame, founder John B. Gibbons returned to Williamsport to serve as the third-generation owner of J.E. Gibbons/Williamsport Monument Co. But he soon identified a need for merit-shop general contractors in Lycoming County. He put together a small team of construction management professionals and founded Hinaman & Gibbons Inc. in 1967, focusing his time and energy on building this business. Renamed J.B. Gibbons Construction in 1970, the company brought architect John E. Kavelak onto the staff in 1974 to become a complete design-build services firm. In 1976, the company was awarded the project to construct the U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building in Williamsport, the first in a series of high-profile and important area projects. By the mid-'90s, the firm's annual receipts were regularly in excess of $5 million.

Mr. Gibbons passed away in January 1999, and Mr. Kavelak in 2004, but J.B. Gibbons Construction continues to operate in its founder's vision; the company's lead team remains intact and committed to sustaining his legacy. In our challenge to sustain the company's legacy of quality, timely and value-oriented construction, we were greatly aided by the loyalty of J.B. Gibbons Construction's team of professionals. The company has continued to trade on its excellent reputation by keeping the focus on our hallmark: providing the highest level of construction supervision in the area. And in addition to projects for our extensive "repeat-business" client list, our portfolio has grown.
